Registration for 2014-2015 is open!

We are excited to announce our great class offerings as well as a few new opportunities! Our new location has plenty of space so we have added parent classes, a lending library, and private music lessons through Academy of Music.

Many of Academy of Music instructors have made themselves available to teach private lessons on Thursdays.  They offer not only an amazing range of instruments but incredibly talented instructors as well!  There are offering private lessons in voice, harp, piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, viola, cello, bass, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, flute, recorder, and saxophone.  Arrangements for private lessons are between the instructors and families and outside of Hedfex enrollment but in order to facilitate a connection, we have sign-up sheets available during the open house.  If you are interested in connecting with an instructor for a particular instrument, please sign up.  You can also contact MCAOM directly through their website at Mount Calvary Academy of Music or call them at 952-474-8893 ext 111. 

We are moving! We are so excited to announce that after 9 years in the south metro, Home Educators for Excellence (HEdFEx) is moving to a new location in Excelsior!

Starting on September 4th with our fall open house, we will be leasing space at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church at 301 County Road 19, Excelsior! Our new location has triple the number of classrooms, a beautiful common area for parents to relax in, an industrial kitchen for making lunch or holding cooking classes, and huge gym! Our new space will give us the opportunity to offer expanded class offerings as well as a lending library, book club, and classes just for parents!

Mt. Calvary is also home to Academy of Music and their instructors are looking forward to providing our group music and drama classes as well as offering private lessons during co-op hours. Academy of Music offers lessons in a wide range of instruments including harp and voice! More details and sign up sheets will be available from 11am-2pm on April 17th at our spring open house and used book sale. The open house and book sale will be held at our current location in Burnsville at Presbyterian Church of the Apostles at 701 E 130th Street in Burnsville 55337.

Our class offerings for 2014-2015 will be opened for registration to new members on April 17th so stop in and meet some of our instructors, our families and stock up on books and curriculum! The family fee (covers facility rental and insurance) is normally $125. Attendees of the open house who register by April 24th will receive a discounted family fee of $100. For families who only plan on attending for one term, there is a reduced family fee of $65. We also participate in Shop with Scrips and rebates earned through the program are credited towards your child’s tuition. New members will be able to sign up and earn money for tuition over the summer. We’ll have a group discussion on the program during the open house!
